The day I found FDS, I legit thought you were all cheaters. (This happened when we were still on Reddit btw. I never dated anyone then and still haven't now.) I had already been calmed down by a post I saw previously about how only bad men will disagree with the sub, but I was still uncomfortable with it due to one repetitive message: date other men while you're still dating him.
I thought you guys were talking about like actual dating, where you declared yourselves girlfriend-boyfriend and agreed to not see anyone else. Then I scrolled down a bit and saw someone in a comment section ask the same question as me, and the queen replied that the poster didn't mean actual dating. She meant when you were in the looking through Tinder, going out every Friday type way. Men hate that and women are shamed for it but FDS thinks it's the best way. When I tell you I was floored...Even women in Jane Austen's time were allowed to date multiple men at the same time, and they weren't shamed nor looked at as harlots for doing so.
Just those first few scrolls had already de-pickme'd me (lol) but that was when I truly had a record scratch moment and began to realize that you ladies were on to something. So, what was your shock of the misogyny of the dating world, and did FDS have a part in it?
